Etienne Michelet - Calendaires
Etienne Michelet is a young composer and musician from France.
After his self-released works "Bleu Vespéral" and "Le Piano à Coudre (The Sewing-Piano)", this is the first release of his ongoing "Calendaires"-project, which moves in the fields of minimal, ambient, experimental music and classical music.
This "Calendaires"-release contains two parts, both together over 50 minutes long. Part one begins in a very dark context. Deep, growling bass sounds coming to the surface very slowly, bringing some motives and melodies with them. All these parts are layered together to a monumental and threatening wall of sound, which collapses and falls apart into a deep and dark soundscape again. Part two brings more light to the listener. Little chime-pieces lead to a wide field of melodies and sounds rushing around, bringing back memories.
